The Ricky Nelson Car

Referred to as the "Ricky Nelson Car". Originally built in 1951 by Ray DeFillipi in L.A. Most all '32 roadsters were called highboys cause the body sat on top the frame. He channeled it over the frame rails and it was referred to as a "Deuce Lowboy". It was originally Red and was featured in Hop Up Magazine in 1952.

Here is the rest of the history on it, up to date. olnolan

Thats A Good Looking '32

Dave, You got some of my eye on good looking cars. Yours is great, but that color on that deuce got me mesmerized. Good flow on the car. I wish I could buy it, enjoy it and make 10-15k for owning it for a few years. I mean it sold for 192k a while back. I've been thinking about the investment potential vs. other avenues. History sells. I have to come up with something original to take the floor, so let me think about it. If ya'll get tired of waiting or got a real tricky one, go for it. olnolan

High Performance Dealership

If you brought a trade-in car other than the brand they sold, they would get you to admit your mistake and swear on a Bible to only buy the brand they sold. This also got you membership in the club. What historical dealership was this? What was the name of the club?

LOL, that is funnier than hell. Never heard of it, but sounds very 50's. I say the Nash Dealer don't have a guess for the name of the club.

I probably returned and walked around that car a half dozen times. Yeah, it's a '32, but the way it was done is so much better then most. Probably the only change I would make is to remove the wide whites to all black tire as they seem to distract your eye from the rest of the car.

Next week I'll try to get back to the museum for their latest show

Yes the car is very cool Dave, I like the color. Thank goodness more and more of those treasures are coming out of hibernation and being displayed. That car is no different than a fine painting. One day maybe there will be a Smithsonian Museum in on the DC mall that will house all the greats.

I'm thinking this has to be one of the Pontiac Judge sealers. I just spent an hour on Google looking, can't find a thing.
